Keep that flame burning #FictionMondays

She could feel it again, the gnawing pain had now become a constant companion. It crept stealthily when she least expected it, made her mind its home and took over every inch of her being. That bubbly woman who loved life, who made every moment count. Was this really her? Lost in the humdrum of… Continue reading Keep that flame burning #FictionMondays

And she wrote her story #FictionMondays

She held the pen in her fingers, undecided. Should I let it out? Should I hold myself back? Should I word this as a fictional piece so that I can pour unto this paper all my thoughts unfiltered and always say “well this is a fictional story”. The guise of fiction sounded tempting. She hadn’t… Continue reading And she wrote her story #FictionMondays

Epiphany #FictionMondays

Tears streamed down my cheeks, I kept wiping them away and blinked my eyes focussing on the road ahead. The last thing I wanted was to cause an accident.

When life comes full circle #SundayPhotoFiction

I looked at the bookshelf that Rohan had bought, the books neatly lined up.-varied colours, sizes, each carrying stories of diverse people and their journeys, happy and sad ones, funny ones and scary ones. Once upon a time I would have devoured them all, without a tea break , such was my love for books.… Continue reading When life comes full circle #SundayPhotoFiction

Love letters #TellTaleThursdays

The fair was always a grand affair that I loved- the giant wheel which gave me a bird’s eye view of the world, candy floss, shopping for trinkets, chattering away with my girl friends and stealing glances with boys from the neighbourhood. I had never thought Jun3rd would turn out to be a life changing… Continue reading Love letters #TellTaleThursdays
